what many consider the first rock n' roll record (silly claim re all the things that went in the mix, but still)

Thanks for posting this.I have not heard the news. Apart from the Ike and Tina drama Ike was a great force in R&B music and a giant in the field. His last CD was excellent and those who are aware of his talent will miss him. I will choose to remember him as a musician, arranger and band leader rather than as a abuser of women and drugs.

i believe the last youtube link i posted is written in honor of the same. of course, ike denies he ever hit anyone (but admits to years in a cocaine haze)
